Born in India, Naresh immigrated to the United States with his family in 1981, settling in the San Francisco Bay area. Naresh graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering.

After graduation, Naresh joined the United States Marine Corps and served from 1997 to 2001, and again from late 2002 to mid 2003. Upon returning to civilian life, Naresh decided to pursue a career as an attorney and enrolled at Santa Clara University School of Law in 2003. In 2006, he graduated with a juris doctor (JD) degree.

In addition to English, attorney Naresh also speaks Spanish and Tamil.

Experienced Legal Services

During law school, Naresh worked at the Northern California Innocence Project, the San Mateo County District Attorney’s office and at the Santa Clara County Public Defender’s office. It was during this final internship that he realized he wanted to become a criminal defense attorney.

After passing the California bar exam in 2006, Naresh established the Law Offices of Naresh Rajan in Redwood City, CA.

Naresh has handled criminal cases at all levels since 2007.  He has tried more than 30 cases to jury verdict with a significant acquittal rate.  In hundreds of cases, Naresh has negotiated favorable dispositions for his clients and has often obtained outright dismissals.  No attorney can ethically guarantee specific results or outcomes, but Naresh guarantees that he works tirelessly and meticulously for his clients.

In addition to his work as a court-appointed attorney, Naresh also zealously represents private clients.
